    Cabinet equivalence

    Post by Creabsley on Sat Oct 19, 2013 8:27 pm

    While I wait for my flex 110, I was thinking about what cabinets it would be equivalent to in terms of volume. Obviously it has advantages also of dispersion etc.

    So my 110 will be louder than most 210s, do the 2 5inch speakers also add into this?
    Making it as loud as say a conventional 3x10 box?

    From what has been said earlier the 110 should compete with a 410. The Eminence 3010LF moves twice as much air as a standard 10" woofer, and the MVW technology doubles that again.

    Do the 2 midrange speakers add to that?

    A bit it will. But they do add a lot of upper end definition and sparkle(especially up in the tweet).

    Not to speak for the experts, but 'Yes'.

    Consider the midrange drivers + HF driver as its own system with a high pass filter -- a bit over-simplified, but the only difference (I would suspect) might be if there is any padding-back going on in the crossover to match levels with the woofer (or vice-versa).

    If I'm off-base, those in-the-know can set it straight.

    In the Flex cabinets the midrange is in its own MVW enclosure. The MVW effect applies to them as well. Furthermore, because of the alignment of the midrange MVW section to the bass MVW section the two become acoustically coupled creating a slight increase in output and a better unification of the sound presentation. You may even notice bass emanating from the output flares of the top/midrange section when played at higher volume.
